On the occasion of Upstate Art Weekend 2021, artist Gordon Hall has both produced a new limited edition sculptural artwork and curated a selection of artists’ books. This table—showcasing some of the many books selected for the in-person presentation—explores themes of performance, artists’ writings, queerness, and experimental documentation.

More about the fundraising edition below:
“Sash” is a sixty inch long and two inch wide double-sided screen print draped over a wall-mounted peg. Much of Hall’s work is invested in everyday objects that contain, carry, and hold, which often emerges as sculptures that carry multiple readings. “Sash” is a portrait of a hanging bathrobe sash, abstracted into a hand-drawn gradient that is both drawing and sculpture. This edition is inspired by work from Hall’s recent exhibition END OF DAY at Hesse Flatow, New York. The purchase of this editioned work includes installation instructions.
